Hello, I live in Ohio and, for my household's situation, am happy with my decisions at the table and some of my results at the table. I have a full-time job (healthcare) which I intend to keep working, but treat poker as a "semi-pro" second job which supports our household budget. I intend to file both my healthcare and poker income in a tax return this coming year. I have a good accountant who is already aware of this intention of mine, and is comfortable filing both income streams.
The reason I'm posting today is that I would like to incorporate online play as well. Only reason for the desire for online play is the relatively smaller buy-ins for relatively larger prize pools, nothing more. I prefer to play cash live. Does anyone here have experience dealing with the IRS when it comes to live and online income? Any challenges I should be aware of before I jump into online tracking and filing? Do you track your records for online bankroll and play differently than you would live? Any other pointers? Thanks for your time and attention.
